As we head into our camp season we are grateful for our beautiful valley and humbled by the dynamic nature of recent summer weather systems. Today we watched the radar closely and managed to have two safe and quality sessions on roller skis. Yesterday the kids got to escape the heat of the valley as they ascended to the Green Mt Ridge to experience elevational cooling and a strong breeze.
Afternoon session for Fast and Female gals: four miles gradual uphill. First two miles on pavement and the finish on smooth dirt. Cool temps and uplifting clouds.
A few of the boys stepped it up to a 15km ski. Dylan Grald led the boys over a cool loop: pavement, dirt, pavement, dirt. Here is Ford Sayre skier, Adam Glueck, striding over the Mad River.
Looking down over Phen Basin from Castlerock.
Engulfed by the grass and experience: Mad River Glen.
Very proud of our local skiers: Noah Eckstein, Elliot Ketchel, Maddy Strasser and Anneka Williams. Noah and Elliot are learning amazing orienteering skills of their local hills — combining winter and summer travels and learning a deep sense of place.
Heading down Antelope.
